Ibrahim Saeed ’15 was in his element this summer—combining his passions for computer science, economics, and people with a paid “Summer on the Cuyahoga” internship.
“… my favorite part of this internship is that I’ve gotten to do a lot of work dealing with the public. … Working with people has really helped my figure out that while I like skulking around the dark stacks of an archives, I like dealing with people even more. It’s helped me develop a better sense of what I want to do in the archival world.” – Mackenzie Sommers ’16
“I can definitely say that this opportunity allowed me to learn so much more than I expected. I got to see paintings, amazing architecture, and even a medieval castle. This experience made me realize how important Miguel de Cervantes and many other writers of the 17th century still are for Spanish culture.” – Roger Skidmore-Nieto ’15
“To me, there is no more empowering or rewarding experience than being able to navigate a foreign country in its own language, and OWU helped me to feel empowered.” – Tyler Wake ’16
“I highly value creating a work that is universal to all; a work that isn’t dependent on a certain language or tradition, but liberated from it all to reach every human regardless of his or her background. My exploration in Bali has certainly given me the cement to build the bridge I seek to connect different cultures.” – Haenny Park ’15
